Organic ready corn

Want some organic c0rn? Good luck with that one… Corn relies on the wind to cross-pollinate. The problem is that organic corn can pollinate off of GMO corn crops many miles away. (Technically, if you plant “organic corn”, you get to call it “organic” even if it is contaminated by GMO crops growing downwind – and that’s what you get nowadays.) Europe tests all organic-grown corn before shipping and when transgenic contamination is found, it is refused. Well, how about you? Don’t you want to know if your “organic corn” is GMO contaminated? My guess is that it is. But, here’s where the plot twists: Researchers have developed a way to preserve the integrity of organic corn by isolating a genetic trait from popcorn that won’t allow the mutant ninja GMO corn to infiltrate other nearby corn crops. One developer, Frank Kutka, calls his corn breeding brain-child “Organic Ready corn”, a salvo against Monsanto products. Now we wait for the marketing to catch up to the demand.

If in doubt - pass on it.

If in doubt – pass on it.
